U.S airports will have new security Standards

All flights landing at United States airports will now have to face new security measures, officials intend to announce Friday.

The new security standards will use up-to-the-moment threat-based knowledge, according to Janet Napolitano, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

The new standards will go beyond the measures implemented right after the attempted terror attack Dec. 25, reports stated.

According to officials, the new standards will use security measures that are both visible and invisible to passenger. It will be a multi-layered flight security system aimed at detecting and preventing future terror attacks.

The new standards stem from a review President Obama ordered following the Christmas Day attack.
Napolitano has recommended in the past that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) implement measures that would apply to international airports, according to reports.

The United States has attempted to gain access to information about passengers flying into the country from Europe, but has been blocked by privacy laws there.

In March, Napolitano announced the use of full-body scanning machines at 11 more airports in the United States.

Approximately 450 scanners expected to be installed at airports around the United States by the end of the year.
